  • Super Telephoto Lens
  • Dustproof, Weather-resistant
  • Filter Diameter: 112mm
  • Insertion Filter: 40.5mm
  • Designed for exclusive use with K-mount lens-interchangeable digital cameras
  • High-grade multi-layer lens coating
  • Telescope-type optics
  • Outstanding image rendition of distant subjects:
  • When mounted on a PENTAX K-mount lens-interchangeable digital camera body, this super-telephoto lens offers a focal length of approximately 859mm in the 35mm format
  • Since its unique telescope-type optics requires fewer optical elements than conventional lens optics, it assures sharp, well-defined images, particularly with distant subjects
  • Also by incorporating two ED (extra-low dispersion) optical elements, it delivers bright, high-resolution images even at the edges, while effectively minimizing chromatic
  • aberration
  • High-grade HD Coating:
  • This lens is treated with HD Coating,* a high-grade multi-layer lens coating
  • Compared with conventional multi-layer coatings, this coating provides higher light transmittance with reduced reflection, to deliver sharp, clear images free of flare and ghost
  • images, even under demanding lighting conditions such as backlight
  • * HD stands for High Definition, and signifies the lens's capacity to reproduce images that excel in transparency, definition, resolution and rendition
  • Dustproof, weather-resistant construction:
  • AW (All Weather) series: this lens features a dependable dustproof, weather-resistant construction with 29 special seals to effectively prevent the intrusion of dust and water into the lens interior
  • By coupling this lens with a dustproof, weather-resistant PENTAX lens-interchangeable digital camera body such as the PENTAX K-5 or PENTAX K-30, the user is assured of a durable, reliable imaging system that performs superbly in demanding outdoor settings - even in rain or mist, or at locations prone to water splashes or spray
  • Exterior design signifying HD series:
  • The lens exterior has been painted an elegant white to minimize heat haze generated inside the lens barrel due to a blazing sun
  • Featured in the middle of the lens barrel is a red anodized ring that serves as a distinct, radiant symbol of the HD PENTAX lens series
  • Strap lugs are made from machined aluminum to enhance its exclusive appearance
  • Easy control of circular polarizing filter:
  • This lens comes with a built-in, removable filter holder in the barrel
  • By mounting the C-PL (circular polarizing) filter (40.5mm in diameter; included as an exclusive accessory) to the holder, the user can easily obtain the desired polarizing effect simply by rotating the filter using its control ring
  • Other features:
  • Smooth autofocus operation using an AF driving motor (DC motor) installed in the lens barrel**
  • Quick-Shift Focus system for instant switching to manual-focus operation after the subject is captured in focus by the camera's AF system
  • SP (Super Protect) coating applied to the front surface of the lens to effectively repel water and grease and easily wipe off dust and stain
  • Rounded diaphragm to produce a smooth, beautiful bokeh (out-of-focus rendition), while minimizing the streaking effect of point light source
  • ** This lens is compatible with the K-5 II, K-5 II s, K-30, K-01, K-5, K-r, K-7, K-x, K-m, K20D, K200D, K100D Super and K10D camera bodies (with Ver. 1.30 or later firmware installed). When mounted on other camera bodies, the focus mode is automatically switched to manual.
